Janet was a born healer. She became an RN as an adult and joined the medical field, but her healing gifts went much deeper. I recall a day many years ago when I was going through something really difficult. Janet and I were sitting alone, across the table from each other at Medco. She reached across the table and took both of my hands in hers. She looked at me with such love, then closed her eyes and bowed her head. I was startled at first as I felt a rush of energy flowing from her hands into mine. Having experienced the hands of healers before, this was not foreign to me but I didn’t know of Janet’s healing gifts prior to this experience. I sat there and took it all in. What glorious energy of healing and love! She was one powerful healer indeed.
Janet and I shared a special love for the angels. She called upon them daily, as do I. She was a kind, loving and compassionate soul. Janet was a giver, always ready to lend a helping hand. Whenever I was heading up a drive for someone in need, she would lovingly place a $20 in my hand and say, this is to help so and so. One day, she handed me a $20 and I asked, what is this for? She said, aren’t you helping someone and I replied, not right now. Take it anyway she said, someone will come. So I did. And they did. And I passed it on.
I have a friend who recently lost her home to a fire. In true Janet fashion, in her last days she told her daughter Melinda that she would like do donate her clothes to this woman.
Yes, that says it all doesn’t it? That is our Janet. That is who she was and still is. For I know that Janet did not die. She has simply slipped through the veil. No doubt she showed up on the other side with her beautiful smile, a joyful laugh and a $20 in her hand, just looking for that next person she could help.
I love you and miss you dearest friend but I know you will be with me always . Job well done, good and faithful Servant.
